Jenison and Martha Brower, Fox

 Adam Brower/Brewer married Charity Foust in North Carolina. At some point
they moved to Mercer Co MO, they had sons in IL, IA, and MO.

Their grandson was Jennison Brower, who possibly was born of Lovey Caroline
Brower, the daughter of Adam Brower and Charity.
It is possible that Jennison used his mother's maiden name

In 1880 Harrison County, Missouri, Jennison Brower, 15, is a farm laborer working for the Daid Roberts family.

Martha might be the Martha J. George, 12, in Dunklin County, Missouri in 1880, with Sarah A. 33, Rober t L 7, Sarah's widowed mother Jane M. Benson, 62, and Jane's granddaughter Marey J. Bensen, 11.

In 1900 Jenison, January 1868 in Missouri, parents North Carolina, is in Harrison County, Missouri -(maybe knew the Kindred family?) Martha J, born August 1868 in Missouri, Daisy C. Sep 1893 Missouri, and Goldie D. Feb 1899, Missouri.

In 1910 Vernon precinct they've added Mary Ada, 9, and Velma Marie, 3, both born in Missouri.

1913 Happyville "J. Brower of Mildred hauled several loads of old corn to D.C. Bell's last week."

1916 "They say that Grandpa Brower, of Mildred, was at one of the neighbors one day last week helping shell corn and actually shoveled more corn into the machine than any three of the other scoopers.  Didn't think it would affect him that way, but we can't always tell."   (maybe a joke about his being energized by being a grandfather?)
